Not at all. As long as you get close to your macro needs every day and you are losing weight at 1 to 2 pounds per week or more, you are doing really well.
You can also extrapolate your macro needs to a weekly total that you have to meet if you’d like. If you eat a ton of calories on one day, don’t sweat it, you can make up for it the next day by eating fewer calories.
Meeting your macros is not meant to be an exact science, but it is one of the best ways to keep you on the right track.
- What is the fastest way to get back into ketosis?
Technically, the fastest way to get into ketosis is by consuming an exogenous ketone supplement and/or medium chain triglycerides (MCTs). However, this method only provides you with a short-term boost of ketones.
The fastest way to get into a sustainable state of ketosis is by:
- Doing fasted high-intensity exercise for 45 to 60 minutes
- Consuming something that is filled with MCTs, fat, and has almost no protein like Ketoproof Coffee or Iced Ketoproof Green Tea to continue your fast until dinner time and boost ketone levels
- Following a standard ketogenic diet that restricts carbs as much as possible.
By using these three strategies together (one after the other from top to bottom), you will theoretically get into ketosis as quickly as possible and sustain your ketone levels as long as you are sticking to the keto diet.
